Whether or not you have responsibility for managing social media channels in your area, everyone has a role in creating messages for our constituents. Social media tells our story and conveys to students, in an approachable way, the information they need to navigate college. With that in mind, we offer a social media assignment that you can complete over the summer.
Has it been awhile since you’ve had homework? That’s OK. Give it a try. Simply answer each of the prompts below and send the information to your social media manager. Under each prompt, we have provided an example to get you started.
1. Name an events program or service you wish students knew more about.
2. List three facts for the program or service in six words or less.
3. Choose a strategy (or several) to make it stand out.
4. When you view information on social media platforms, what are three things that make it stand out to you.
Please provide your ideas to your social media manager. In doing so, you have made a great contribution to the communication plan (the story) for social media in your area. Have fun this summer!
